Based on the already sporty ESport variant, the Nürburgring edition adds finer touches like a pronounced front bumper, a piano-black grille, new 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a diffuser-like element for the rear bumper and stickers of the ‘Green Hell’ on the front fenders.

Inside, black leather seats with contrast stitching and red inserts for the dashboard and door trims lend the sedan a sportier look. The ESport Nürburgring edition also features LED headlights.

Coming to the mechanicals, the Corolla ESport Nürburgring edition continues to be powered by the 1.8-liter four-cylinder Dual-VVT-i engine which develops 141 PS at 6,000 rpm and 177 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Only a CVT gearbox (a 7-stepped CVT) with paddle shifters is offered on this edition.
